What can I say, I don't play video games...not even really our Wii. But I ROCKED the Galaga back in the day (especially the table-top Galaga it seemed every pizza place in the 80's had). I may just have to stop in and see if I've still got the moves. Teach some humility to a few 10 year olds.

Now if only they had Pole Position...
LOL, I was wondering if anyone was going to comment on that one

Anyway, I have a website that I find really cool that you might enjoy about coping with our chronic diseases. Keep up the great work, take care of yourself and happiness always!

Great report!! I've only gotten thru the stateroom portion so far. I can't wait to read the rest this week.
This is really making me excited to see the Dream for myself next Sunday on Lou's cruise.

A Couple of ??'s

Hi Cass. As I have said and everyone else on here, Thank You so much for taking the time of sharing your thoughts and opinions and those fabulous photo's of your cruise.

I have a couple of questions I think you can clear up for me.

Question #1 - The digital clocks that are in the rooms. How easy -or- hard are they to set to wake you up in the mornings?

Question #2 - I thought I read in another report that there is a night light in the ceiling contolled by a switch on the wall. The light is where the double bathrooms are so you can see in the night to get to the bathroom. Did you see this night light?

Thanks Cass for your help.

I'm sorry, I am not going to be much help here...

1-I did not even attempt to set up the clock as I used my iPhone as an alarm every morning. Sorry, can't help you with that one.

2-Interesting! Nope, didn't see anything like it! What I did see was that on the desk, where all the switches are...there is a switch that turns on the light on the ceiling in the middle of the couch/desk area. I don't recall if it was labeled night light but it lit up just soft enough for it to be used as a night light. I turned it on and then turned off all the other lights just to see how bright it was. I tried taking a photo but obviously it didn't turn out

I never used that because Michelle slept in that area but what I did find out is that if you have the A/C turned on, the blue lights on the thermostat lit up and with 2 or 3 lights, it acted perfectly as a night light I get up 2-3 times a night so it was very handy for me to find my way to the bathroom without making a huge racket!

Also, the last 2 nights, we didn't have the A/C all the way up, so no blue lights but what I did do was hit the snooze button on the top of the alarm clock and that turned on the backlight, got up, went to the bathroom, came back and then hit the snooze button again, which turned the light off

So, you have a few options depending on your situation

I used to love that game too and was fairly good at it...I tried it recently and lets just say I have totally lost my touch.

Hi Cass, me again!

One quick question. Do you know if the Dream always backs into CC? I had a CM tell me that they don't always back in when I tried to change from port to starbord. Anyone else chime in too! Thanks!

I can help here, #1 the clocks were awful. We could not get the alarm to stop and ended up pulling the plug LOL. More than one person has complained on here.
#2 The switch for the night light is one of the switches on the desk. Works great!!! Its not at the front of the room.

I was told that after (9/11) that 95% of the time they back in. Usually if they don't, it's on a double dip cruise, and one time they go straight in and the other they back in.

So I should probably just bring my own alarm then?

OMG!! I sure hope this gets better before April! We're trying to make our way to Universal Studios for the day. I would be sooooo disappointed if customs took this long!

Stateroom 6006

Hi - we have Stateroom 6008 and by the looks of your summary, our room will be just like 7008 - it's the first room after a corner room forward. Do you you know? That big porthole has me saying boy, aren't I good at picking rooms (but had no idea when I booked it 18 months ago!).
Thanks for the report!
